If you've already made up your mind in Campaign 2004, today is the last day to cast your early vote.

An estimated 3,400 people voted already in all the state and federal races on the ballot, which is a Tulsa County Election Board record.

News on 6 reporter Omar Villafranca says early in-person voting started Friday at the Tulsa County Election Board. If you're looking to avoid the lines, the doors don’t close until 6 PM.

This election has already been memorable for Nadia Datskiv. She teaches violin and viola at a Tulsa middle school. She came to the US from the Ukraine when she was just seven years old.

Nadia recently received her US citizenship and this will be her first trip to the polls. She's taking her voting privilege seriously. "I think that participating in an election is an honor and a duty. And I think that every person who is an American citizen should be involved. I think it’s a privilege that I have the freedom to go and cast my vote."

New voters, like Nadia, have to bring a picture ID to the polls. Just a reminder, if you want to vote Tuesday, you have to vote at your local polling place.

If you need help find that, you can call your county election board office or go to www.mypollingplace.com, type in your address and it'll pop up.
